Irregular migration in Macedonia

It’s been more than 7 months of LEGIS’ humanitarian response in Lipkovo, through our field office and assistance point in Lojane village. During this time we provided humanitarian aid in food and non-food items on daily basis to the population using irregular ways to travel towards Western Europe, referred cases towards specific services provided by other organizations or the authorities, but also noted and mapped the risks, violations and abuses that vulnerable population is facing during irregular migration on this part of the Western Balkan Route.

For the period of 25th of August 2016 to 31st January 2017, LEGIS Field teams managed to reach out and provide assistance to 3486 people in transit in the Lipkovo area, 22% out of which are women and children.

Below you can find the summary of our 6 month work and the statistical data we’ve been collecting starting August 2016 till the end of January 2017.
